    Just picked up an LG G7 today, and although I've not hooked it up to my stereo at home yet driving today in my truck I have heard possibly the best sound from Spotify I have yet to experience. It has a 32-bit quad DAC and Aptx HD Bluetooth and just plain sounds awesome.

    I’ve heard great things about the Dac in the g7, a friend of mine just got the v30 I hear it has a great Dac also , curious to know what you think of it hooked up to your system.

    Spent some time with this phone and my headphones and main system, it just plain rocks!
    I have just the Spotify app thur the Xbox in my HT and from PC to the dac in my Halo p5 and I think this is the best Spotify has sounded IMO.

    I have the V20. The way this performs with my higher impedance AKG headphones is unreal for a cellphone. I love listening to Tidal and Spotify with this thing.

    I wish LG was better with software updates. This phone is still on 7.0. The 8.0 update is supposed to remedy an issue where the DAC automatically up-samples everything .

    Apparently 2 DACs out of 4 are disabled by default in settings on this phone. Make sure to enable all 4 for the best SQ.

    The DAC and headphone amp are the reason I've owned the LG v10, v20, and now v30. It's been good enough that I overlooked the myriad of issues the v10 and v20 had. So far the v30 has been great, but I've only had it for 6 months.

    My v10 suffered from really short battery life, and bootloop issues. Had it replaced under warranty twice in 1.5 years. My v20 had really short battery life, and screen burn in, replaced under warranty once in 1.5 years. My wife's g5 had battery expansion, thing expanded like a balloon.

    I have a 6600mAh extended battery. Things a beast and it extends tee usability well into the next day on a charge and maybe beyond. The stock battery on the V20 tho is trash.
